Donegal man helps ensure that Errigal retains its correct title

A Loughanure man has succeeded in having the name of the most famous mountain in the county changed to its original title.
The mountain has always been described by locals as Errigal.
However in recent months the mountain has been described by websites and in print media as ‘Mount Errigal.’
Patrick McCafferty recently in succeeded in getting the name of the mountain changed from Mount Errigal to Errigal on a popular website.
Patrick said that should people come across a site describing the mountain as mount Errigal to ‘drop them a line’ and correct it in order to retain the correct title.
“I've done my bit for the mountains,” the Loughanure man said.
